The topic of the session held great significance, as it emerged recently, especially during the last decade, Israel’s tendency to arrest young children under the age of 16, according to the report of the International Committee of the Red Cross. Children in it who are arrested either during the invasion of any of the regions or during their passage of the crossings or during their attempts to enter Israel to work after the end of the exam season, where children are caught and thrown in prisons, and they are exposed to many types of psychological and physical torture that leaves its present and future serious effects on the lives of The detaineesAccording to the results of international studies that considered the exposure of children to imprisonment as a shock to children, which pollutes their current and future psychological and intellectual realities.
Indeed, the impact of these traumatic events on children far exceeds that of adults due to the lack of experiences that exist in children, the newness of the child’s age, the lack of defense mechanisms and dealing with juveniles, and the lack of personal compatibility methods with stressful events significantly.
There have been many global, regional and local studies on the impact of trauma to children on their stages of development, especially the studies of Sigmund Freud, in which he showed the size of tension, fear, isolation and many psychological and mental illnesses as a product of passing through the experience and adversity of war.
